Penbryn Beach

Penbryn is a large sandy beach backed by a dune system and cliffs. The beach is operated by the National Trust and running across it is a small stream known as the Nant Hoffnant. Penbryn is a very rural beach with only a small amount of parking. The majority of the parking is a few hundred metres back up the valley at Penbryn village. The beach is popular with surfers, canoeists and kayakers. There are many caravan parks in the area, offering a wide range of facilities and the beach is popular as a stop-off point for walkers using the Ceredigion coastal path.
